When in Rome (just like the song) I took a photo on a street in Rome. Later I realized the photo had gps tag, so I went and looked it up on google maps.
To my surprise the graffiti text on the wall has not been swept away, yet.
I added the photo and a picture of google maps along with the URL in case you are curious to go an see for yourself.
This was last year (2017) in October.
There is always someone watching someone.
Piazza di Spagna, where people just go to walk by the fancy shops, or on the plaza or to sit on the Spanish steps.
There was this flower shop by the way, and one of the things I noticed was that they had a bouquet of cotton (placed almost at the center of the photo), red peppers and pumpkins…
I wonder what it would be like to give red peppers to someone.
Here the Spanish steps that lead to the Trinitá dei Monti, and if you walk al the way the 136 steps and take a right you will find a theater that by the way was showing the play Grease… yes that Rock n Roll one, but in italian. On the photo below, on the building on the corner (left) there is the Babington’s, a tea and coffee room, highly recommended.
Here is a maps link to show you around.
A coffee place in the middle of the street in Rome.
A lovely place. Notice that each chair has its own umbrella.
On my way to the Vatican I took this photo. You can see at the far back Saint Peter’s cathedral in Rome.
Mixed photos from Mexico City.
So easy to find a café to have dinner or just dessert. As many as the wondering and winding streets as many as the places to have a sit. I would get a coffee and point my zoom lens to take photos at any moving target. It is the easiest way to be unnoticed by casual models.
I am certain you have seen or heard about the Trevi Fountain. It is a must landmark visit when in Rome.
Designed by Nicola Silva and finished by Pietro Bracci in 1762, it just took 30 years from start to end.
The picture was not easy to take, it was very sunny though it was taken in the middle of October making it a little bit out of focus and not as clear as I would have wished; it was very crowded and it was hard to find a good spot to shoot the picture. I visit this place several times during my stay and have more pictures of it. I will update this post with some more when I get to them from my huge photo file.
A temple for all gods or in greek: The Pantheon.
Now a church dedicated to Mary and the Martyrs,built more than 2000 years ago and in perfect state. I had to go twice since it was closed when I got there (this photo). I was able to visit it again and found it open. It has an amazing dome (picture to come) of 142ft. Just as comparison, the Capitol’s is 96 ft. in diameter.
On top of the dome there is a hole, know as oculus 7.8 meters in diameter and this is the only source of light.
